|Tumbling Dice to the left, Valiant to the right.|
One result of the search was the discovery of the Tumbling Dice line of 1:2400 scale vessels. These are smaller than I would have liked, but I placed a small order (last year) to see what they were like. Twelve months on, I've finally painted a few of them and thought I'd share a couple of pictures. The website at Tumbling Dice has changed since I placed my order and is now much easier to use with clearer definitions on which ships belong to which range. There are still no/very few pictures though, so I can't say for sure which vessels I've got here.
I have a few left to do including a couple of galleys. All the ships came with a separate molded bit of sea, but as I wanted mine on regular bases, I dispensed with charm of the little waves. This wasn't a problem with most of the ships, but with the galleys, the oars are molded with the base, so there was a little challenge to free those up.
